Colorado Men Michael Green & Byron Bolden Awarded Donkey Of The Day

Colorado men Michael Green and Byron Bolden have been awarded Donkey Of The Day.

Last year, two Colorado men by the names of Michael Green and Byron Bolden went to a local Kohl’s store in Parker and stole $2,094 worth of items out of there including brand-name shoes and clothing as well as a KitchenAid appliance which earned them the name “KitchenAid Mixer Crew”.

While said retail theft was bad enough, The “KitchenAid Mixer Crew” have been awarded Donkey Of The Day for the following reason…

Eric Ross, spokesperson for the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, had this to say: “The legal argument by the defense was that these two individuals basically stole merchandise that was on sale, and if you took the sale price, it would fall below the $2,000 threshold required for a Class 6 felony conviction.”

It’s worth mentioning that in the state of Colorado, stealing over $2,000 worth of items constitutes a felony.

Ross adds, “At the end of the day, we [prosecutors] argued that it didn’t really matter if the items were on sale or were discounted – those discounts and sales prices should apply to paying customers only, not thieves.”

Ross concludes with, “When we talk about retail theft, it’s not just somebody stealing shoes for their son or daughter. The cases we see involved people taking five, six, 10 pairs of jeans, clothes, shoes that often end up on the black market. This is not for personal use. This is often used for resale value. We really want to stop that.”

Green has since been sentenced to 15 months in prison while Bolden has since been sentenced to 90 days in jail with credit for time served as a condition of 18 months of probation.
